English term or phrase:all of it paid for in money
I come across the following fragment:
If you're just starting up the vertiginous curve of cookbook ownership, allow me to offer certain words of advice, all of it ***paid for in money***:
Never buy a book because of its pictures
Never buy books with tricksy layouts
Avoid books with too wide a compass
Does "all of it paid for in money" mean that the author has spent money on this kind of books and can therefore tell they should not be bought, or (such as in an earlier Spanish translation), that this is meant to help the reader save money?
Thank you very much for your swift answer. I interpreted it like this but the other translation has already been published (I am translating into Catalan) and that's why I started hesitating... 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
